There’s nothing quite as idyllic as a peaceful, tree-lined street, filled with stately homes -- and those seeking an abode in one of Toronto’s most coveted neighbourhoods need look no further than 15 Otter Crescent, a charming detached house that’s perfect for raising a family.
Nestled in beautiful Lytton Park -- a well-situated enclave in the Avenue Road and Lawrence area -- this stunning brick home is conveniently within reach of some of the city’s best private and public schools, lively shopping districts, and plenty of green space. Inside, it’s been extensively renovated to showcase a modern aesthetic and provide every comfort, including new gas fireplaces in the living room and finished basement, brand-new GE Cafe appliances in the kitchen, and extensive landscaping in both the front and back yards.
Walking in the door, visitors are instantly taken by this home’s airy yet refined appeal; a soft neutral palette makes the most of the ample natural light, complimented by rich hardwood flooring and dark wood detailing throughout the main level. A generously-sized living room, centred around a large street-facing gable window, opens up into an open-concept kitchen and dining space, with walkout to the backyard.
The kitchen has been designed to serve form as well as function, featuring glossy quartz countertops, white subway tile backsplashes, and custom white cabinetry with chic gold-toned hardware. Built-in appliances in the pantry area, including a Bosch coffee maker, microwave speed oven, and Leiber wine fridge add to its luxurious feel, while modern lighting fixtures keep the space fresh and contemporary.
Upstairs are three spacious bedrooms, all with bountiful closet space, and a spa-like bathroom with a deep soaker tub along with even more storage and a dressing room area.
Downstairs, the family will enjoy cozying up around the fire before the entertainment centre; the perfect place to set up a recreation or play room, or simply take in an evening movie. A second bathroom, featuring a sizable steam shower with rainforest faucet and finished laundry room, round out the lower level.
